My scrappy string quilt just hasn't been going together very fast, so I've challenged myself to make a string block a day for the month of August. It's tempting to make more, so on the days I have extra time I might try to make some ahead to use for the times things are really hectic.
By the end of the month I should have at least 7 more completed large blocks! I hope this works; I really do love string quilts and have always wanted to make one. I'll be sharing a tutorial soon for how I'm making my blocks.
Working on these string blocks was kind of a project of necessity. You can see my scrap basket is overflowing (and I have another scrap basket which is bigger and is just as full). Maybe by the end of the month I can be back to just one scrap basket!
I'm also trying to work on works in progress as the summer winds down...my solids along quilt made with the Moda Friendship blocks is finally taking shape...and I have another set of sampler blocks that have been sitting in a box for far too long that should be set together soon! I had to work on some works in progress this weekend, though, since I want to start a couple of new things (including a couple of projects on my Ten Things This Summer List)!
What are your goals for August? Thanks so much for stopping by!
